As well as being owner of the hotel lungomare, has just enough time to accompany tourists in their discovery of the region. Her passion for cycling, inherited from her father, is equalled only by her love for her region’s cuisine and every trip is a great chance to get her to reveal some of its secrets!
The Nove Colli-Selle Italia is the oldest and most successful gran fondo in Italy – in fact its 12,000 places sell out in just 3 minutes! Thousands of cyclists from all over the world take on the 210 kilometre ride every year. The route, which covers nine hills with a maximum gradient of 18% on the mythical Barbotto, is punctuated by signage so it can be trained on and ridden all year round. An alternative course of 130 km is also offered for slightly “lazier” cyclists, with four hills to climb. As is tradition, there are nine feed stations along the route, where participants can refresh themselves with traditional products, including fresh pasta dishes and gluten-free foods. The Hotel Lungomare is an official partner of the event and therefore able to enroll you just a few days before the start!
